second childhood

My father cleared out the glory hole recently and all my old toys reemerged. I was presented with a very sooty dolls house. After giving it a wash and a Mr Sheen I thought it would be quite fun to furnish it.
I decided I would like to do it up, a traditional 50's style house and so I bought some vintage furniture from ebay. You're welcome to have a look around here's the nursery......

All I need now is the baby, but its difficult to find 1/16th scale people. I made a few bits and pieces for it. The rug is crocheted 4ply cotton. The crocheted blanket would have looked better with a thinner wool. I also made a wee teddy which is a mini version of the teddy pattern for the Mother Bear Project.

I didn't have a pair of needles fine enough for the wee teddy, but I found an odd single dpn which I snapped in two.

Ill show you round room by room, as I make a few more items.
Bye, Ali

    Have you thought of trying the op shops for other oddments and bits and pieces for your doll house??? You could also make your own.

    You will also find cheap knitting needles of all sizes dirt cheap too at any op shop.

    All the best

    What are the cubes made of?


Id love to hear what you think about my blog, knits etc.
